11 miles, is composed of a tine a body
pf productive and fertile soil, that only
nerds to bo tickled to mako it produce
results equalled by no other section of
tbis great domain oC ours, und which at
no distant day io bound to stand ut the
head of tho list as an agricultural section us well as that of a mineral producing territory. Owing to the mining
pi aze whioh seems to have got such u
hold on ninth-tenths cf tho population
pf tho went, comparatively no notice has
been taken of our great agricultural
re ources and the advantage it oilers to
all those who aro willing to embrace
them. The rapid increase in the population of this Bection has oreated a mar-
i'.-A for tho products of tlio farm, which
(act alono in tho future will have a ten
tiuioy to stimulate more activity in this
line of industry, and it will not ho many
years beforo the fertile acres ot Grand
Pralre will be ownod aud tilled by hundreds instead of a fow as ie tho cuoo at
prcKont.
In order to moro fully demonstrate
what can be accomplished in this line,
a representative of the Mitii'it, IuhI Sun
duy, in company with his family, U. I'l.
Lambert and family, upon the invitation
of tho owner, paid a visit tu the farm of
W. H. Covert, situated six milca south*
west of Grand Forks, at the head of
tho prairie.
Mr. Covert locuted on this place In
the spring'.!! 1885,having taken it under
the pre-emption act of the province, nnii
BtandB today a living monument of what
industry and poisoverar.ee, assisted by
nature, can aooompllsfl, In tho fall ol
the samo year of tho location of the place
Mr. Covert set out tho nucleus ol his
present valuable orchard and fruit (arm,
which today iu undoubtedly the finest on
tho pruirie', and .equal to uny in the
county of Vale, it consisted of aboul
100 trees, divided among apple, peach,
poar, cherry, apricot, prune, ote., besides an ondless variety ui' small ii aits.
In order to ascertain whioh variety
would prove tho boot adapted to the
climate uud tho moot prolific two of
each of tlio well known varieties were
selected: Apples—Thompson county
King, Ben Davis, Dutchess ot Oldeu-
borg, Qravlnsteln, Newton Pippin, Blue
Pear man, Golden Pippin, .lottery's,
Baldwin, Wealthy, Yellow Transparent,
Tetopskey, Northern Spy, Wlnesap,
Snow apples, Talman Sweets and alurgti
number of other varities.
Pears—-Winter Nellio, i'l'luish Beauty, Bartlott, Sickle and Columbia,
Peaches—General (Irani, fJarly Crawford, and Early Rare Ripe.
Cherries—Early Richmond, Royal Ann
and Black Tartam and Black Republican. The list of prunes cousiotsof only
two varities the Italian and Abundance.
Of all the varities planted it was found
that not ono proved a failure und as u
result of the experiment, two years ago
Mr. Covert set out fifteen acres in orchard, eight of whloh was in prunes,
Ho has now ubout 1000 pruno trees, 100
apples, and about lOOother treos of miscellaneous truits, such as poars, peaches,
quinces, cherries, apricots, crab apples,
peach plums, etc. In tho apple orchard and bet.veen the rows of trees,
which are 25 feet apart both ways, aro to
be found long rows of small fruits consisting of strawberries, red, and
black raGpborriea, blaekborrios, gooseberries, currants of all hinds, grapes, et*:.,
all of which havo thrived and tha yield
from which has beon something wonderful. Mr. Covert ha? apple trees in
his orchards that he will bo able fo pick
IOC to 500 pounds of fruit from this season.
In the garden can bo found all varities of vegetables, such as potatoes, to*
matos, boots, turnips, beans, onions,
cucumbers, cabbage, Stowell Evergreen
corn, musk and wator melons, and in
fact everything that an epicure vege
tarian could desiro, all of which do will
and thrive with but very little care and
attention.
Nearly the entire 320 acres is so situated that it can bo irrigated by water obtained from Fourth of July croek, which
is tapped about two miles above Mr,
Covert's placo and for tho uso of which
he has obtained from, tho government
the right of the tirst use of 300 inches o!
water.   While Mr. Covert was waiting
for his fruits to maturo ho was not idle,
but kept himself busy improving other j
branches of his farm.   As a result of
his work,  ho has this year 200 acres
In grain, 160 of which is in oats that I

AlNOTHiiR HEMBER FOR \ ALE.
In tho ordinary courso of ovonts the
bcxt sitting of the Provincial Assembly
should bo the last of tho present legislature, and thero is no reason tu doubt but
that tho Provincial Government will
carry cut itfl e pi eesed intent of Intoduc-
\pg a redistribution bill. Evon if the
Government had expressed no intentions
at all in tbe matter it is evident that
the remarkable development which tho
Province has undergone during tho past
three years and tho groat increase of
population which has lakou placo, especially in the southern portion would
render a redistribution bill a positive
necessity.
In such a bill the claims of East Vale
to an additional representative cannot
bo ignored. Even at the election of 1894
and before settlement had made any
headway at all in tho southern part of
lhe Riding, East Vale, polled double
the number Qof votos for its ono
member that ut least six other constituencies polled in the same election, l'i
fact tho voting population of tho riding
was only exceeded and that by Insignfi.
cant figures by the cities of New Westminister, Vancouver, Victoria and the
Delta. Tbe exact figures are New Westminister 1109 tor one member, Vancouver 1203 for each of its 3 members, Victoria 15119 for each of its four members,
and the Delta 11IJ0 for its one member.
East Vales vote iu tho some election was
1052 for one mombcr."'
Since that timo tho entire southern
portion of Yale has become comparatively well populated, Midway, McKinney, Fairview, Osoyoos, Anaconda.
Greenwood City, Carson, 'Irand Forks
and CascadeCity have become the thriving center of both a resident, suburban
mining and agricultural population,
The voting population from Pentieton Eouth is nor,- at hast as largo as
North Victoria or Esi;uimalts was in
1891. But when wo consider tho largo
non-voting population which has to be
considered in additioii and tho interests
of which are no less important than
,those of lho voting population, we may
safelv assume that tbo government will
need very little assistance in coming to
the conclusion that the country from
SycamouB to the International Boundary is inadequately represented by a
single member,
YALE nv'ST BE DIVIDED.
In former issues of tho Miner an endeavor has been mado to point out
the necessity of dividing the county
of Yalo into a uorth and south riding,
From a careful study of the question it
is plain to bo Been that all that territory this sido south of Pentieton should
compose tho south riding and that on
tho other sido tho north riding. At
present all business pertaining to
land, such as the taking up and tiio
filing ot pre-emptions must be done
through lhe government agent at Vernon; and although lhat official, Mi.
Leonard No'rris, is an exceptionally
painstaking and prompt official, his tor
ritory is so extensive that It is impossible for him to become thoroughly acquainted with tho requirements of
all parts of tho county, Again, there
uro matters arising here daily that require the personal atte ntion of a government agent, as woll as tho other county
officials. Those and many other reasons
can bo given why the county should
be divided.
Tins action of thc city council iu providing a free convoy for all freight consigned to reservation points should meet
with oommendation from ovory citizen,
fciince the wagon road has been completed from Wilber to Eureka the representatives of the Washington Central railroad, in Spokauo, huvo been using the fact that a S5.00 convoy feo was
expected from overy porson who made a
shipment of goods to reservation points,
as a club to turn freight and travol over
their lino. Now tbat tho club has boon
broken by the action of tho city council in furnishing a free convoy, there is
no doubt but that tho bulk cf travel
will continue to go this way, as the
transportation facilities are much more
comfortable and rapid, than via the
Washington Central route.
Great surprise is being expreBeed by
our cousins across tho line over the fact
''that there aro othor pobblos on tho
beach," and if they want to hold tUe
trade of tho country something has to
be done besides sitting down and crying ovor tho disappointing railway-
news. The furnishing of a freo convoy
Us the first invitation that has boon  ex
tended for many a day towards offering
inducements for travel to come this
way. if this action had been takon a
year ago there would not have been so
much talk of building a road from Marcus to Eureka. Thero are a groat many
other things that can be done toward
altiacting trado this way and it is to be
hoped that good work will not bo stopped at its beginning.
There is uo question but that ocon-
omy is all right in tho management of
tho affairs of either a city or private individual but in either event thero is no
occasion foj splitting hairs. What we
want in Grand Forks is a good business
administration. She wants the work,
necossary to bo done, to bo dono at
onco, with fair and reasonable prices
paid for what she gets, let 4t bo labor
or material. A good adequate sewer-'
age Bystem is needed badly and that at
onco. oho should own her own water
and light plant and it should bo built
as soon a3 possible. Let ail these
things be done in a business like way,
not like tho grading of Bridge street,
and tho people will bo satisfied.
A WOMAN named Mrs. Omier was in

Rents a Pack Outfit and Fails to
Make the Proper Return,
W. T. Wren, a livery man from Rossland, arrived in tho Forks last Mondav
night in search of J. H. Woolery, who
was at one timo sheriff of King county
Wash, It was not because Mr. Wren
had any particular friendship for Woolery, nor did ho come as a messenger
conveying the welcoming news ot tho
death of a rich relation, who had left
all his cash to him, nor that ho was the
lucky holder ot a Chinese lottery ticket
but an ontirely different mission. .According to Mr Wren's story Woolery
had formed too strong an attachment
for threo of his horsos—ho does not ac-
cus that gontloman of stealing hiB
four-dollar cayuses, but merely appro-
oriating them to his own uso.
It appears about six or eight weeks
ago when the ox-sheriff was on his way
from tho Slocan country to the reservation, that bo rented from Wren, who
was then running a livery barn at
Northport, a pack outfit consioting of
three horses and the necessary paraphernalia to comprise a complete prospecting layout, for the period of one
week. Since that time nothing had
been heard of him except that, ono of
the horses had diod and Woolory had
sjld one, and becoming alarmed concerning tho return of his property had
traced that gentleman to this city,
J where it was ascertained that ho was at
present at Eureka on the reservation,
for which place the irate livery man
left oarly Tuesday morning swearing vengeance and declaring that he
would have tho return of his property
or there would be trouble.
MISTAKES IN MAIL SERVICES.
Tin- Boundary Creek Times Thinks
It Has a Kick CoMino.
Everything is not smooth in tho Postal service at Greenwood, according to
tlio last iseuo of the Boundary Creek
rimes, which makes its kick as follows:
"For several months past there have
been mistakes made in tho distribution
of mail at the Pentieton office or at one
of ,tho distributing post-offices to the
north. Mails which Bhould bo in the
Greenwood bag aro placed in tho Grand
Forks bag, aud consequently they art-
forwarded to the latter point. The result is that business men of Greenwood
are often at an inconvenience and losi-
becauso they do not receive important
letters .until they aro returned from
Grand Forks. We aro well awaro that
there iB a largo amount, of mail to be
distributed from tho Pentieton office,
hut tho government should provido the
postmaster with sufficient assistants to
ensure a moro careful distribution of
mail end jreveht so many errors, It
is bad enough to have i"ails only throe
times a woek from Pentieton, without
tho additional vexation of finding that
important letters havo beon takon to
Grand Forks and necessarily kept
there a day beforo boing returned to
Greenwood.
In relation to the same subject the
Times hither says:
"Aftor considerable agitation and
grumbling on the part of tho inhabitants of Kootenay the Postmaster-General has authorized tbe conveyance of
mails daily botweon Revelstoke and
Trail and other Kootenay points. Now
if the Honorable Mr, Muloch would
authorize tho conveyance .pf mails
daily between Pentieton and Boundary
croek points, the residents here would
fully appreciate the service. If that is
impossible this summer, it would not be
a difficult matter to arrange the conveyance of mails daily to and from Grand
Forks. There is now a daily stage on
this route and the extra expotiBO should
not prove a barrier, Thoro is already a
daily mail from Marcus to Grand Forks
and there is no good reason why this
service Bhould not be extended to Greenwood,
TELEPHONE LINE.
W. B. Aris Says That One Will be
Built Here.
In an interview in the Spokaue
Chronicle relativo to building a telephone lino into this section, W. B. Aris,
manager of tho line, recently said;
"Tho enterprise has exceeded be/ond
our expectations. We are now preparing to construct an extention or branch
into Grand Forks, B. C. The route has
beon surveyed and the work will bogin
at once, Thc line will branch off from
our present line at Bossburg and will
follow vory nearly tho stago until reaching the international boundary. .There
we connect with tho British Columbia
Telephone company, which carries the
line into Grand Forks, Greenwood and
Midway, Wo are also preparing to put
our wireB into Buroka, but. have not determined whether to run the lino from
Kettle Falls up tho Kettlo river or to
branch down acioss tho boundaiy line
from Grand Forks."

Liberals Meitl
Tbo regular bi-monthly meeting of
the Liberal association of Grand Forks
and vicinity met in the Miner office
last Monday evening; Among the
other matters attended to at the meeting was the appointing of James Kerr,
J. P. a second vice president of the association. After a general discussion of
tho political situation some half a dozen
new names were added to tho roll of the
association and the meeting adjourned
till Monday evening the 23rd last.
Dissapointed.
Recent arrivals from Eureka report
that some of tho Grand Forks citizens
who pulled up stakes and went to that
place, to engage in businoss" are not
meeting with the succesB that they anticipated. In fact they find that the
nickels and dimes are not rolling in
there with any more rapidity than they
did in the Forks, and almost evefy line
of business is greatly over done.
Right Vou Are.
The Tacoma Ledger says that Canada only owns a small portion of the
Vukongold fioldo. Then why, in the
name of common sense, do not American citizens go and develop tho mines
which Canada does not control; and

Reservation Record.
Eureka camp, that marVel of the
tninerul world, which wheb its news was
first heralded abroad created an excite-
tnont second only to that occasioned by
the placer strikes on the Klondyke, has
t-apidly passed from the prospective to
the development stage and bow begins
to present the appearance of an old established camp. The floating prospectors, whose tents for a time whitened
the hillBi have pushed on toward Toroda,
Trout and Meyers creeks; ahd points
West and north of Eureka, stimulated
in their search for wealth by the success of the Eureka locators and by reports ot similar finds in Torada and elsewhere.
But while the transient prospectors
have been striking their tenti? a population of a mote substantial type has been
accumulating, And the "city" is larger
today, and more business is being transacted than ever in its short blit eventful career,
So miiclx.has Heeri said and written
regarding Eureka that it seetiis like repeating history to go into details In describing it< it sooths that everyone
must have a goodidettof, the damp from
the descriptions of it lhat Have been
written, but no one ban fully appreciate
He importance Without paying it a visit
and looking over the immense mineral
deposits which have made Eureka so
justly famous.
,  Since it has becoiiio established beyond a doubt that the dikes of quartz
carry gold in paying d ijantltiefl and that
the value not only continues but gr.*>ws
greater with depth, extensive development work will be pushed oh all the
claims through which runs any one of
the great parallel leads.   On a number
of claims work is progressing with all
the  men employed Who can be used,
.The tvpq, qlaiajs upOn which the most
development work h*»s been done are
Republic and Lone Pine.    These are
both working three shifts, and on both
tunnels are being driven no that these
.properties escape the annoyance from
water with which those who are sicking
shafts have to contend, and which has
Recently caused suspension of work on
the Black* .Tail and .Sun JPo.il*.    The
(DwnerB.pf thtjse.claltjje, however, will put
.in-pumping machinery as poos as plants
.can be secured and^thp work of,develop-,
king the property will proceed with renewed energy. ... j
-   On the Bodie, the south extension of
•the San Poil, the lead was struck last
week in the shaft at a depth of 18 feet.
,Hoisting  apparatus has  been put in
place and work on the shaft will be continued.   The work is being, done on thei
.northern boundary line  of the claim,
■near the summit of the hill  where the
croppings appear.   There is no doubt
"that the lead runs completely through!
.the claim though it is covered with drift!
to a depth bi twenty feet or mote,
V  There are. about 100 men employed on
'the Eureka properties and in addition
to these; quite a number are developing
iheir own properties.   Practically every
<busineflB ami profession is represented,
and all the merchants appear to be doing a good business.   Buildings continue going up, and many of them are of
a substantial order that speaks ot a determination on the part of theit owners
fo winter. .*. Many  pf . the. tents'   and
"shake" structures *now doing service
'for stores,.lodging houses, &c, will be
replaced by substantial buildings before,
ihe advent of cold weather.    Ode reason why bo many temporary [quarters
br*. new befog lieed is ttiat the townsite
is not in position to be placed on sale,
and the business men do not yet know
in what part ot the camp they will per 1
tnanently locate, and until this question
•1b definitely-, settled they will not put up
permanent buildlrigB.- *.
The Hilo, Rosa, Sunday, Monday and
Tuesday claims will be platted .by the
Clark brothers of bpokane, into atown-
site as sobft as patents can be obtained,
whioh'will probably be in the course of
tWo' or' three months.   These claims lie
considerable lower than   tjhq  present
i5'Smt>,\'8na on mucli more level groiind.
The location", of  the  present-. Camp is
-seamed with gullye and grassy  ridges
over which and thr&iigh the tents and
houses are scattered promiscuously, and
connected   with  a  net work of trails.
The camp is a model of good order, dis-1
turbances of tiny kind being unknown,'
and its inhabitants retiring with the
bun. The exclusion of intoxicantc irom J
the .reservation by the United States
laW, effectually prevents carousing and
lawlessness.

Visits our schools.
Inspector Burns off Victoria, on his
Annual Took op Inspection.
William Burns, B, A., of Victoria,
one of the four school inspectors of tbe
province, was an arrival in tho city last
Monday, from Cascade City where he
had been arranging for the establishing
of a school in that thriving little burg,
inspector Burns is on one of his regular touts Of inspection of the schools of
the province and visits to this section,
he expressed great surprise at the
growth it had made and gave it aa his
opinion that the neit twelve months
would see the population of this district more than doubled. Mr. Burns
spent Tuesday in inspecting our school
here as Well as the Grand Prairie and
expressed himself more than pleased
with the teachers and general management of these educational institutions,
and after taking a general survey of tho
city and surrounding country left for
Greenwood Via Wednesday, morning's
stage.
During Inspector Burns short stay in
Grand Forks he made may friends
by hiB genial ahd frank manner and
on taking leave of the city spoko in flattering terpis df the general appearance
of the Forks, saying: "You have a
beautiful Bite foi' ?. City here ahd a very
fair commencement toward ..building
one of the biggest towns in the Kettle
River Valley."
In conversation with a representative
of the Miner, Mr. B'ur.hs stated that he
telt    confident   that  within  the  next
twelve  mOnths  a  railway  would   be
built froni Pentieton to  Grand Forks',
or as far as  Midway   anyway;  as the
time had arrived when the wholesale
merchants of the cost cities  had awakened to the importance of securing the
trade of this section',, which feat cannot
be   accomplished    without    adequate
transportation facilities, and it was evident that development of the country
had reached such a Btage that would
furnish sufficient tonnage to a railway,
In speaking  of  the  growth  Of  the
school   system   of   the   province   Mr
Burns said that it had been greatly enhanced during the,laBt twelve months
and that in many towns, where everything Seemed to be at a stand still, the
growth   ot   these   places   was   easily
guaged by the yearly  increase  of  the,
school attendance.   In reference to our
school here, Mr. Burns, expressed the
belief that in the f uture the average,
daily attendance would warrant the employment ot another teacher, as in these
young cities  the   population was increasing Very rapidly.
In reply to the tj-uestion, "What is
the political situation throughout lhe
province?'' Mr. burns replied: "That
it was greatly mixed and it Was a hard
problem to Solve at this early date in
the campaign. One thing *as certain,
however, .that things, were badly
mixed to Bay the beat of it and It was
anybody's game." ..   ,
Mr. Hums expects that it will take
about six weeks to inspect the Schools
of this district as be has. a large territory to go over. We hope that lie will
get around to see us often as he is a
gentleman woll posted in the, affairs of'
the province ahd one whom it is a
pleasure to converse wil b, and that his
predicijiqn regarding the biiildlpg of a
railway troin Pentieton will prove true,
and his next visit to the Forks will be
made In varnished cars with cushioned
seats instead of a dusty stage coach.

During Mr. Strong's sojourn in Spokane he mado extensive purchase of machinery for thi Black O'uil, and upon its
arrival, in about ten days, the work of
driving a 350 foot tunnol on thin proporty will bo begun. The shaft has
been sunk to a sufficient depth to assure the value cf thc property and
moro extensive development work will
